It's too soon to predict that Bridesmaids will come close to the $175 million total of There's Something About Mary, but it's pretty much guaranteed that the funniest film of 2011 will make it to $100 million.

I'm mystified by the seemingly constant frenzy online about whether or not the Farrelly brothers' longstanding urge to make a Three Stooges movie will ever get off the ground. It's toxic-remake mania taken to an extreme.
